Using T-SQL:

I know the LOGIN NAME of a user. How can I find the USER NAME that is associated with the login name for a particular database?

check out the master.sys.syslogins sid column vs the databases.sys.sysusers sid column ...

angelIII,

Thanks for your help. I am just trying to drop a user's login and database user. Since I know the Login Name I can drop the login easily but I don't see a T-SQL command to drop a user from a database using the Login Name or SID. How would I do this? Do I have to directly access tables in the master database?

Thanks again,
Bob

Sorry for being slow but I still don't follow.

e.g. Say login name is [mydomain\bsmith] and my user name is [bob]

If I only know the login name how can I find the user name? DROP USER requires the user name.

Thanks
Bob

select l.name login_name, u.name user_name
from master.sys.syslogins l
join reportserver.sys.sysusers u
  on u.sid = l.sid
where l.name = 'mydomain\bsmith'
